Hi,

I'm sorry I think you misunderstand my thread.. I don't want to crack anything, but just know how that "Connecting" text was changed.. I tried myself but didn't manage to change it.

Anyway delete this thread now please, I wrote it because I couldn't send PM.

Regards.

Wiccan es muy jodido, no le des bola que no te hará caso xD

Mejor pregunta en el foro de elhacker (.net) ahí son menos inteligentes, pero algo pueden decirte.

Es más, me las juego todas a que me pone una advertencia o cierra el tema por haberte respondido en Español... Laughing

Your thread pertained to cracked software which we do not allow here. This section is not for support with cracked software, or cracking commercial software. So your thread was locked and the link was removed.

If you want to know how things lie that are done use a non-commercial example. (In terms of what to use you need an IL editor or a decompiler.)

I do understand Spanish btw, and no, it has nothing to do with not caring. His post broke rules.

Asking questions if perfectly fine here, but it has to stay within the rules and posting cracked commercial software broke the rules.

Okay, then I just would like to know how can I change a program text (ie. a simple Label in VB.NET) and if that is possible with CE or you have to decompile - edit - reassemble/recompile.

(I'm not dealing with any particular/commercial software now)

Regards!

You can use an IL editor to do without having to decompile/recompile the entire executable. Assuming your new text fits in the same space too, you can use a hex editor in most cases for simple strings that aren't obfuscated.

Thanks for your answer Wiccaan.

And what if it is obfuscated? Is there any way to modify it without having to deobfuscate it?

Depends on how well the obfuscator does its job. In most cases the obfuscator injects IL code just before the string is used. So it'll encrypt the string, and inject a de-obfucater call just before the string is used. You can use this to your advantage to de-obfuscate the string easily to find if it is what you want to edit.

In other cases you can just use a prog like de4dot or NETDeob to remove the obfuscation (to a point on unsupported protectors) and work with it that way.

Thanks again Wiccaan (and sorry for bothering :S)

Well, I managed to "almost" do it with HEX editor, but there is still something that I dont understand...

I edited the text but this is what happens: An extra "0" appears between my letters, the one on "MaCrOs 0 . o" (See the attachments)

Where the hell does that "0" come from? If I change the "0D" character to "00", it will crash.

I couldn't manage to remove that "0" :S Any idea of where I'm mistaking?

The text is unicode. Each character has to be separated with 00 bytes. When you want to stop the string entirely use two 00 00's together.

Thanks again,

I didn't know the string end format. Anyway I don't know where that "0" comes from (the one in "TestingNe0wText", it seems a letter O, but it is the number 0).

What am I missing? Embarassed

It's showing up because the format is wrong.

Well, so I follow the pattern you told me: letter-00-letter-00-letter-00-00

But when I save it and try to open, it crashes (see attachment)

I don't know if it has something to do with the "0D" of the previous post.

Thanks again.

Post a screenshot of the original hex it uses without any edits you made.

Hi there, I'm sorry I was out for the weekend :S

Here is the original hex without any modifications:

Alright from the look of it, it's using two different strings then.

"MaCrOs " - is the first string.
" . o " - is the second string.

The 0 being added might be in the code itself when it appends the two strings.
